Drug manufacturing in Africa e-book hit

18 June 2020

A free e-book featuring innogen's research into drug manufacturing in Africa has become one of Palgrave Macmillan’s top five open access downloads of all time.

Making Medicines in Africa, edited by Professor Maureen Mackintosh, Dr Geoffrey Banda, Dr Paula Tibandebage and Dr Watu Wamae, overturns widely-held views of the African pharmaceutical industry as either poor quality or non-existent. It also points to how the industry can and should be developed for the benefit of African patients.

Professor Mackintosh said she was pleased to learn that the e-book was being read and referred to in African networks.

“Given so many difficulties of access to research literature experienced by African policy makers and academics, the fact it is open access is especially important.”
